The Daily News said of Mrs. Tolle, "Her contagious energy and easy sparkling laugh almost disguise her desire to use art to change lives."

She has recorded for BMI, Albany Records, New World Records, and most notably on EMI Classics with Itzhak Perlman on the album 'Concertos from my Childhood'. She performed with The Orchestra of St. Lukes, Albany Symphony, the Prometheus Chamber Orchestra, Shaker Mountain Opera Festival, the Lexington Philharmonic, Camerata Notturna, Princeton Pro Musica, Cape May Festival Orchestra, and many others. She performed with Il Divo at the Emmy's, with South Korean sensation Sumi Jo at Carnegie Hall, and with many popular ensembles at Radio City Music Hall.
